Dash Bubble - 2012 Overland

Hi All, a couple of weeks ago noticed my defroster vent startng to raise in the middle , after feeling around noticed a bubble had formed on the leather dash pushing it upwards around the edge, also a few other smaller air bubbles in various spots of the dash. Dealer is replacing the whole dash tomorrow with a new one, wondering if anyone has had this done? I know its a big job so a little worried however given the car is less than a year old I did not want this to get worse over time, also getting the rattle in the pano roof fixed while its there, any stories on what I should expect? The dealer has been really good to work with and have done a few things with no issues in the past that should have been caught at the factory, any input would be great.
Thanks

I know both of those fixes are major tear apart and put together repairs. I've heard that if the techs know what they're doing, you should be fine. Please let us all know how it works out. Neither issue is all that rare, so the knowledge base is there for the techs.

I had the same problem on my 2011 Overland. Dealer said it was a PITA job, but the replacement looks great and I haven't had a problem since. We'll see what happens next summer when it's baked in the sun.

It's funny to me when I read about the same problems others have had. My dealer makes me feel like every time I have a problem that is something unique that they (or Chrysler) have never seen before.

Me too. I'll buy that in the case that it's the first time that specific dealer saw it....my dealer told me that they called Chrysler and there were no reports of the issue and I have read several with the problem on the web forums.

Dealerships lie. I bought a quad cab Hemi 1500 4x4 in Aug of 2008 when all hell broke loose in the economy. The dealership was empty and there was discount after discount offered. I asked how sales were going and was told it was their best month yet. I bought a nice Big Horn packaged pickup for 50% of msrp.
